Jerald D. "Jerry" Hubbell, age 85, of Howard, Kansas, passed away February 3, 2021 at Andover Courts in Andover, Kansas.  He was born October 2, 1935 in Eureka, Kansas to Carl and Ila Ruth (Hurd) Hubbell.

Jerry grew up in Howard, Kansas alongside two siblings and graduated from Howard High School in the Class of 1953.  He then attended Coffeyville Junior College in Coffeyville, Kansas for two years.  In 1956, he enlisted in the United States Navy, serving his country for four years.  After returning from from the Navy, Jerry began dating Martina Garralda.  They fell in love, and in the spring of 1960, they were united in marriage.  Early in their marriage, they moved to Texas for awhile but ended up moving back to Howard where they raised their two daughters, Terri and Christi.  This spring, they would have celebrated 61 wonderful years together.

Over the years, Jerry worked in life insurance sales, banking, real estate sales, and farming and ranching.  His passion outside of work was playing the steel guitar.  He loed getting together with other musicians in the area where they would play country music in an old storefront in downtown Howard.  People would always show up to dance or just hang out while they played.

Jerry is survived by his wife, Martina Hubbell; his daughters, Terri (J.R.) Harroald of Augusta, Kansas and Christi (Don) Robert of Colwich, Kansas; his brother, Melvin (Irene) Hubbell of Winfield, Kansas; and his grandchildren, Nick Templin, A. J. Templin, Stephanie Templin, Levi Robert, Jace Robert, Jeremiah Robert, Sage Robert, Rayna Robert, Zane Robert, and Timber Robert.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Carolyn Brogan.

Cremation has been requested with no services planned at this time. 

Memorial contributions can be made to the Benson Historical Museum or the Howard City Library and can be mailed to or left with the funeral home.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Countryside Funeral Home, 206 E. Washington, Howard, Kansas 67349.
